67th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards - Press RoomAmy Schumer is having the best year ever: She has a hit, critically-beloved Comedy Central show ("Inside Amy Schumer"), she had a hit, critically-beloved movie ("Trainwreck"), and in addition to the Peabody she scored earlier this year, she just won an Emmy on Sunday. But that's apparently not enough for the comedienne -- she also reportedly just landed a huge, multi-million dollar book deal, too.

Reports surfaced earlier this month that Schumer was shopping around a collection of humorous essays, in the same vein as books from fellow female comedy giants Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and Mindy Kaling. While Publishers Weekly initially estimated that Schumer could snag "a high-seven-figure advance" in the $5 million-8 million range, according to Entertainment Weekly, the project has actually aimed much higher.

EW reports that Schumer has officially closed a deal with an as-yet-unnamed publisher, and her advance is actually somewhere between $8 million and $10 million. That's lightyears ahead of the controversial, headline-making sum ($3.7 million) doled out to Lena Dunham for her book back in 2012.

But if anyone deserves it, it's Schumer, whose talents both on and behind the camera can't be ignored. Though details about her book are being kept closely under wraps for now (Publishers Weekly reports that interested publishing companies had to sign non-disclosure agreements before looking at the manuscript), we imagine it will be equally as funny and awesome as those from Fey, Poehler, and Kaling.

Here's hoping we won't have to wait too long to read it.
